Maggie Monday: Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping

Cold weather does not mean en end to ice cream. In fact sales will often increase with the first coming snow storm as many people want to bundle up on their couch, binge watch on Netflix and have a big bowl of comfort. Here’s Maggie with some extra love for that bowl…

I decided to make ice cream toppings for Christmas goodie gifts this year since I couldn’t be on my feet much due to some surgery. I made Silky Hot Fudge sauce (posted earlier this year) and wanted a Peanut Butter topping to go with the chocolate. I tried a couple of recipes before settling upon this one that I tweaked and combined from several I found.

This is smooth, peanut-buttery, and not too sweet. It is a perfect match with the Hot Fudge over ice cream, or used to make a milkshake or smoothie. I think all of my recipients were pretty happy to receive these jars of joy!

Peanut butter was a particular hit here at home with Daughter #2 Picky Pants.

    Netflix and ice cream.

    You’re absolutely right and you’ve just described my weekend. I left my house in a blizzard to pick up an ice cream cone this past Friday. No regrets.

    I love ice cream in the winter just as much as in the summer. This sounds so good. Saving to my Pinterest. Hope you are doing well after your surgery.
